For now, this page is a place where you can record a request for a bot-like task. It is possible that the OLPC_talk:Bot Interest Group page will take over this function in the near future.
There is no guarantee that a bot or bot-herder will come along and magically grant your wish for a highly repetitive (hundreds of iterations) task to be performed, but we would like to gather some information on bot-friendly tasks that people would like to see performed.
Category clean-up task
O' gods of all things wiki-- I humbly beseech thee for a bot that will let me edit multiple files at the same time, so that I may recover from my sleep deprived screwups. AuntiMame 20:42, 2 September 2008 (UTC)
Synching of pages between wikis
Sugarlabswiki and this wiki have some pages that should be synched, and would like to share templates and images if possible. If not possible, a bot to mirror certain categories or support human-mediated updating would be helpful. Sjux
A spelling bot for correcting common mistakes will be valuable. "Child Foundation" for instance is often misused when meaning the association, "$100 laptop" often means the whole page needs an update and often needs to be freshened itself, &c. Sjux 07:16, 3 September 2008 (UTC)
search based on category?
A search option based on multiple categories would be nice. And/or some method that helps user to know the existing categories, and offer the option of applying one or more to the page they are creating.
